I had not much time to prepare this trip from home, I just downloaded a few satellite images from the section, a chart from North America, shipped my kayaks, grabbed my gear and […]

Kodiak

Pos: 57.7923, -152.3870 Loc: Kodiak Acc: Deb and Eric’s house no paddling today Oh, I woke like being in a sanatorium! My whole body cried for rest and recovery after those ten days of continuous paddling, and especially after the last hard one. Not enough sleep yet, as I liked to catch up with my online […]

Pos: 59.6371, -150.0421 Loc: Paguna Arm Acc: tent Dist: 41,1 km Start: 7:15 End: 17:15 The night’s high tide got close, but had still space for three more days to rise. Eyal was so worried about getting flooded, that he barely slept until 12.30am high tide. I might have also kept one eye more open, so […]

Ok, for me it started with a bit too much waiting for Eyal getting ready and me getting cold in the wet dry suit, but oh well…all good. We both paddled right around the corner through […]

Pos: 59.6989, -149.7333 Loc: Verdant Bay Acc: tent weather day No bears to hear in the rainy night, but a boat woke me at 7.30 am. Probably some forestry warden or such, dropping three people quite close to our tents. But neither them nor us wanted to make contact in pouring rain. When it calmed down […]

Pos: 59.6989, -149.7333 Loc: Verdant Bay Acc: tent no paddling today The predicted heavy wind and rain started right after we had landed yesterday, and since then it is simply ugly weather. I spent all day with a mix of sleeping and reading, had breakfast at 7 am, nachos and cheese and cherries for lunch, and […]

Pos: 59.6989, -149.7333 Loc: Verdant Bay Acc: tent Dist: 40,7 km Start: 6:20 End: 16:15 We had a peaceful sleep on the rocky steep beach. Eyal was asking me yesterday for a precise launching time this morning to be ready in time, I first said “When we wake up!”, but he demanded to know it more […]
